you're talking? >> and that would be -- >> i don't know that mr. romney wants to walk into that. >> because you're right. at that point the president gives him a choice. either repudiate his running mate or say privatization is on the table. >> and i don't know that he wants to do either. >> either one. >> let me ask you this, e.j. when ryan says -- he argues that social security is going bankrupt, let me show you what he said. >> let's talk about medicare entitlements. both medicare and social security are going broke and taking a larger share of tbudge the process. will americans under these programs have to change for the programs to survive? mr. ryan? >> absolutely. medicare and social security are going bankrupt. these are indisputable facts. >> when you look at the facts, he's distorting them. medicare will be able to meet 88% of it is obligation until 2085 even if there's no changes made. social security is funded for another two decades. is he trying to scare people into his policies, e.j.? >> the answer is clearly yes. i mean, this idea that social security is going ban

akin is and then i want to talk about the akin aspect of the romney. >> right. >> let me show you this ad. >> i'm a republican and a pro life mother and a rape survivor. in the hospital i was offered emergency contraception because of my personal beliefs, i declined. here's what else i believe. no woman should be denied that choice. >> now that's an effective ad. when you look at the fact that ryan and akin are two of a kind, paul ryan, the vice presidential candidate chosen by mitt romney and todd akin co-sponsored a bill called, the no taxpayer funded abortion toll tha would limit what would be considered rape, that funds could only be used for forceable rape, which has been the controversy around akin. >> right. and paul ryan co-sponsored it. >> co-sponsored it. >> co-sponsored it. not just supported it. and this is what is so incredible, that now the anti-choice people are so -- they smell victory and they are letting romney get away with this flip-flopping. so instead of calling him on the carpet and saying, what do you mean? we all know what he meant because we know he's goi

president obama and mitt romney tied at 48%. just minutes ago the president talked about the first debate. >> governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night but i think what's important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about hasn't changed. governor romney went to a lot of trouble to try to hide what his positions are. if you have a bad game, you move on to the next one and it makes you that much more determined. the difference between this and sports is that the stakes are so high. >> we knew this race would be close. the question is, how will we respond? joining me now is dick, chairman of the south carolina democratic party, and tan den, president of the americans for progress. thank you both for being here. >> thank you. >> nira, today you cautioned obama supporters to stop freaking out. so where do you see things now moving forward? >> you know, i actually think that if you look at the numbers, even on gallup, the president took a hit to his numbers from the debate performance, no question about it,

in that authentic moment of mitt romney when he was talking to all his rich friends, that he has content, disrespect for people, anybody who has any -- relies on government in any way, medicare, social security, veterans benefits, we're talking about active military. the disrespect that he showed is something that i think all voters ought to take with them to the voting booth. >> michelle, quickly, let me ask you -- i started with citing one poll has the president up, another romney up. what do you think 29 days out? >> serve kind of waiting for the shoe to drop. the president had a bad debate but then the job numbers came back really well. the media narrative is waiting to see what the next big thing is going to be. maybe it's going to be joe biden. we don't know. >> january schakowsky, michelle cottle, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >>> the president has been fired up for days and today we know exactly why. good luck, governor. >> we put two wars and tax cuts on a credit card and now governor romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for? not if i'

whoever, to try to nail him down. so he'll be ready. mitt romney had -- very good at talking around a very -- the key i think the reason he got away with that, is that nobody was there to call him on it. no moderator, really no -- so the expectation is biden will try to pin him down and spell out for people, when we start talking about these deductions, this is what's at risk. other telling them, hey, you know what? the deductions are at risk. either way those are discussions he's not wanting to have. he's got to force him into a corner on that. let me ask you quickly, what do you think -- mr. ryan -- steve kornacki? >> i i've always been impressed by joe biden. the reason he ended up on the ticket in 2008 is because of all those primary dietz bates, when it was hillary and obama were the stars, but the guy invariably we end up saying won those debates was joe biden. he's a strong communicator, very good in the debate setting. i expect him to press the case in a way we didn't see last week. how ryan handles that is really the $1 million question. >> steve, thank you for your time toni

at 45,000 and a couple lower ones at 20,000. >> and a couple higher. >> what mitt romney is doing is something i haven't heard a single figure ever do, which is endorse the current health care status quo. and you can talk to hospital administrators, the folks that run catholic charities, people in medicaid. the current status quo is where people show up in emergency rooms and it's the least efficient, most human and expensive way of delivering health care. that's the status quo that everyone agrees is broken that we should do away with and, in fact, was one of the main drivers. >> exactly. it's agreed to by both parties. >> no one says that it's a great system, people wait to get care until the emergency room. >> aside from services with emergency rooms where you could sit there forever and it's an amazing show of how detached he is of the average life of an american. but let me go back to you, krystal, because we talked about his opponent, mr. ryan. biden has always been able to sell himself as a president who can relate to the middle class. listen to him doing the 2008 debate. >> l
